HACSU Forum at Box Hill - 22 Feb 2017
Brief overview:


"Our quest is quality care for people with disabilities". Inferring the DHHS is the only service provider who can provide this! Openly stating, only the DHHS has qualified and trained direct care staff who can provide consistency of care within a good safety net. And, as NGO staff are underpaid, you can't expect other than under performance with a serious lack of effective supervision - so abuse can be rife.

As regards the NDIS. HACSU question the move to NDIS being tied to the need for just NGO service providers. They consider the NDIS "Choice & Control" should mean participants and their stakeholders have choice of, Gov, NGOs and Corporate.

They cannot, don't want to see that Gov cannot operate in the marketplace with NGOs, within an equal opportunity framework. And, that the traditional public service management culture negates marketplace incentive within marketplace law. Which is vital for the provision of quality of life care and support, as was the intention of the Productivity Commission in placing the support service funding in the participant's pocket!
